I wanted to share some of the ways that I stay oragnized during the school year. For the past three years I have used a Lilly Pulitzer Agenda. I really love them! Honestly, I just love the bright colors, it makes learning fun, cheesy, I know but very true! I literally write everything in it; when I wash my hair, when I need to get my allergy shots, when things are due (obviously), what my weekend plans are, basketball/football games, what blog posts are going up on what days, the list goes on. Between my club and organization, Fashion Associates and BSCPB (Black Student Cultural Programming Board) and this fraternity stroll competition (Akt Like A Nupe), I’m very busy and sometimes overwhelmed. I do have a separate planning method for my blog though. I have a binder with various blog info and calendar print-outs that is solely for documenting when each post goes up. Because I don’t look at my blog planner every day, I like to right the post titles in my Lilly planner.
I also use stickers for pretty much everything! I think they’re cute and fun and jazz up the pages. Aside from using stickers to help mark different things, I make check boxes next to different assignments or to do lists. Once I complete something, I cross it it off! I am a very visual and weird person, so I have to physically see a line through something or I feel frazzled and get overwhelmed because it doesn’t look like I’ve completed anything. I also color code for this reason as well. For each class, or anything in general, I write them in a different color just so I can easily differentiate the different things I need to do. It also adds a lot of color and looks super cute. As for pens, my pencil bag is actually insane. I love pens, I always have! I clearly love color so it only makes sense to have a million colored pens. For this school year, I ordered a lot of pens from jetpens.com, it is truly a magical website, especially if you’re a pen fanatic like me.
I actually left my pencil bag at home when I came back from break and almost dropped out because I just could not function (kidding of course!), but luckily my cute mom mailed my bag down!
Thanks for reading guys!! Make sure to follow me on Pinterest too! I have a college organization board!
